Teaching

Accademic year 2008-2009

University of Warwick, Coventry, UK.

  • Latin America: Themes and Problems (AM101) 

Within this team taught module I was responsible for lecturing on the history of modern Mexico. My two lectures covered the second half of the nineteenth century (Mexico I: from the Porfiriato to the Revolution) and the Mexican Revolution up to the 1940s (Mexico II: the forging of a new nation). As a seminar tutor, I was in charge of two discussion groups meeting fortnightly throughout the year, besides guiding the discussion my responsibilities included marking three formative essays for each student, and providing them with advice and feedback on the writing and research process through individual tutorials. AM101 is a first year core module for undergraduate students in the School of Comparative American Studies, it is also opened, as an option module, for first, second and third year students in the undergraduate programmes within the History Department.

Spring semester 2006

Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas (CIDE), Mexico City, Mexico.

  • History of Mexico I.

From January to June 2006 I taught first year undergraduates from CIDE's programmes in Economics, Law, and Political Science. The module, designed by myself, covered roughly two centuries of Mexican history from the late seventeenth century to the first years of Porfirio Diaz's rule in the last quarter of the nineteenth century and required the students to read primary sources. I received a note of 8.6 out of 10 from the students' evaluation and CIDE's History Division asked me to teach another module the following semester.
